A 21-year-old Kingman man is alleged to have posed as a girl on an online social network in order to exchange nude photos with underage girls.

Barry Wayne Neuenschwander was arrested last week by the Mohave County Sheriff's Office on two felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter said detectives received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding Neuenschwander and online child pornography.

Neuenschwander was allegedly posing as a girl on www.Tagged.com and encouraging other girls to send him nude pictures of themselves.

He was arrested at his home on Packard Avenue and booked into jail.

When questioned by authorities about the accusations, Neuenschwander reportedly said he solicited the girls because he was "bored."
